Antimicrobial Copper offers an additional measure to counter pathogenic microbes and reduce the risk of infections spreading in all hygiene-sensitive environments.

Wherever pathogens can survive on surfaces where people gather for medical treatment or even to work, shop or relax, there is a risk to health that can be reduced by the application of Antimicrobial Copper.  With routine cleaning and disinfection, copper can provide an additional measure to keep pathogens at bay and reduce the risk of transmission.


Copper and copper alloys are engineering materials that are durable, colourful and recyclable and are widely available in various product forms suitable for a range of manufacturing purposes. Copper and its alloys offer a suite of materials for designers of functional, sustainable and cost-effective products.

Copper and certain copper alloys have intrinsic antimicrobial properties (so-called ‘Antimicrobial Copper’) and products made from these materials have an additional, secondary benefit of contributing to hygienic design. Products made from Antimicrobial Copper are a supplement to, not a substitute for standard infection control practices. It is essential that current hygiene practices are continued, including those related to the cleaning and disinfection of environmental surfaces.
